The time to join the Roosevelt High School PTSA is now! The PTSA raises money to support many programs to help our students. It also provides staff appreciation and is part of a regional and state wide PTSA organization. Please join us by signing up to be a RHS volunteer this year. Each year, more than 200 parents and guardians sign up to help with school and PTSA activities. New this year, we are using a survey rather than a paper form – please go to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZJYVPZC and complete the quick survey. To use the paper form instead, download the membership form and return by mail or to the RHS Main Office.
PTSA Board meetings are open to everyone. Meetings are held in the Library at 7:00 pm, normally, on the third Wednesday of most months during the school year but may be rescheduled to avoid conflicts with holidays, vacations, or school events. Our first meeting this school year will be Sept 21st.
Welcome to the 2016-17 academic year!
Did you know that parent involvement makes a huge difference to our students’ success? More than 85 research studies conducted over the past 30 years prove that kids do better when parents are involved. Grades are higher. Test scores improve. Attendance increases. The Roosevelt HS PTSA supports all students in our school and is focused on helping parents/guardians, teachers and administrators better support students.
To support kids in our school, we Advocate, Collaborate, Communicate and Educate:
COMMUNICATE: We share important and timely information through our website and electronic newsletter.
EDUCATE: Our regular meetings are designed to help you find out more about what’s going on in our school. Principal Brian Vance attends every meeting, our student leaders keep us up to date on their activities and we invite speakers to share more information with us about topics of interest to all of us. This year we are focusing on teen alcohol and drug abuse information and prevention.
COLLABORATE: We provide direct support to teachers and other staff through our highly successful mini-grant program; support class-year fundraising to offset senior year costs, provide volunteers for the RHS’s annual fund drive), and much more.
ADVOCATE: We are members of the largest and oldest child advocacy organization in the country: the PTA; we advocate in the school, as well as at the district, state and national level to support all kids.
